Our "Never-Ever" List
We believe you and your family deserve healthy skin and a healthy life - that's why we're firmly committed to bringing you nontoxic, natural products.
Here's why: Your skin is not only an organ, but also the largest organ in your body. It protects your body's more sensitive organs, immune system, and nervous system.
Sadly, the FDA poorly regulates the skincare and beauty product industry, and many of the chemicals commonly used to preserve your products can also harm your skin. That's why we'll NEVER-EVER include these:
Aluminum - This controversial ingredient was linked in a 2005 study to be related to an increase in breast cancer cells because it blocks the ability to sweat, which is why is it used in commercial deodorants. Our bodies were made to sweat we just do not have to stink! The evidence is inconclusive as well as the 50 year debate that prolonged use can cause Alzheimers. At Jordan Essentials we have solutions so you do not need to temp fate or use ingredients that are questionable.
Gluten - While this wheat-based protein doesn't affect everyone, to protect those with gluten sensitivities, we've made sure to leave gluten out of our products.
Isopropyl Alcohol - Great for the medical community to sterilize, not good for skin care! A cheap ingredient often added to skin care can actually be drying and irritating.
Mineral Oil - It is the same the key ingredient in the Baby oil our mothers used, but it's an occlusive agent, which means it blocks the pores and disrupts the skin's natural respiration process. A 2011 Journal of Women's Health study reported that "mineral oil hydrocarbons are the greatest contaminant of the human body."
Parabens - Cosmetic companies add parabens to their products to preserve them from bacteria, yeast, and mold, but some studies have linked this preservative to breast cancer.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) & Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) - These chemicals, can irritate your skin, lungs, and eyes. Who wants that?
